There is no organization more qualified in swim instruction than the Y, who invented swim lessons in 1903. The Y teaches water safety, a critical life-saving skill for all children and adults, and how to swim. These skills builds confidence and makes it possible to safely enjoy pools, water parks and the outdoors.

Here are some guidelines:

  • If your child is 6 months 2 years old sign your child up for the Parent/Child class.
  • If your child is 3-5 years old and has never taken swim lessons or has not taken swim lessons since last summer, sign them up for the Level 1 class. If your child took swim lessons in the spring and passed, sign them up for the Level 2 class.
  • If your child is 6-13 years old, look over the Class Descriptions list. If your child cannot perform the skills at the Level 4, sign them up for that class, and so on.


Swim Lesson Success

“My son has learned so much since starting swim lessons – not only about how to swim, but how to focus on the task at hand and work with others. The Y instructors are kind, courteous, patient and interact with a good attitude and a smile. What I enjoyed the most from the instructors is that they keep calm, even when the children are not at their very best.”
